Evening of Advent Songs

Advento dainų vakaruiThe dark period of late fall is being replaced by the time of the winter solstice. The repertoire of songs is changing as well, so this evening of singing will feature traditional Advent-Christmas songs, characterized by a peculiar poetic style, specific melodic intonations, restrained slow tempo and tranquility.

In these songs, most of which come from Dzūkija and Eastern Aukštaitija, images of human experiences are collated with motifs of nature. The songs enriched with mythological images depict that the time of darkness is over, the spark ignites the fire and the circle of the year begins to spin again.

On December 16th at 6 pm we invite you to stop during the busy pre-holiday period and get together in the Advent-Christmas song circle, where we will try to feel the harmony of nature and human and experience the eternal flow of time as we sing.

The song evening will be hosted by Eglė Česnakavičiūtė, coordinator and organiser of cultural activities.

The number of participants is limited, so please fill in the registration form.

Participation is free of charge.
